Some of you may remember that I mentioned teaching a freshman seminar this quarter on Food Writing. Well, we had our first meeting last week and today our first writing assignment is due. I told the students I’d be following along with them, so below is my version of the first assignment.
We could choose between 2 tasks: either write about your favorite food without ever saying anything remotely like “I love it because…” and instead, tell a story or find another way for the reader to understand that it’s your favorite; OR write about your favorite food using no adjectives at all and then go back and add 3 adjectives. (These are prompts from “Will Write for Food” and we are working on showing, not telling.)
